    I have a Moat. I run it in a deck that tries really hard to find and protect Humility, then everyone plays draw go until they find Austere Command or I find one of the two or three auras that give me flying and I kill them 3 damage at a time. It's lovely. I'm sure Donald agrees with me.

    I think my commander to-get list is pretty much

    1 Nether Void
    1 The Abyss
    1 Forcefield

    right now.

    Teysa, Orzhov Scion is a wicked powerful combo/control general when built with synergy in mind, cheap both in mana cost amd cash and with a very unique abilty that is able to play in many roles.
    Second this. Teysa is decent repeatable removal herself and has lots of good control tools in her colors. Black and white have plenty of combos, and she typically heads very synergistic decks. Some of the more powerful things you can include to support her (Requiem Angel, self recursive guys like Reassembling Skeleton) are dirt cheap too, which should help with your budget.

    Next building over, I assume.

    You'll get better suggestions if you can tell us what colors or strategies you normally like to play.

    Many, possibly a majority, of typical chaos cards don't really stop Rift if it's overloaded and I assume that's the issue you have with it. Omen Machine, Knowledge Pool, Planar Chaos (half the time), and stuff that screws with their mana off the top of my head. Is that really a good answer?

    For everyone who doesn't actually know what science is like, I took a picture:
    The part that says 96% is a dirty lie.

    Dack Fayden sounds like a name straight out of Star Wars.

    Decent card. I'm not expecting to ever see his ultimate go off. Even if it did, it would have to be in a deck that was more or less designed for it to be all that useful. The first two abilities seem good enough on their own.

    I haven't run Spine in quite some time. I've seen it used pretty well by Slobad decks, but I generally prefer other removal.

    I also have a Transmute Artifact in the deck which allows me to drop it into play killing a target then immediately put it back into hand for the cost of 2 blue and an artifact that I'm going to get back.
    This doesn't work. Check out the oracle text on Transmute. If whatever you tutored for costs more than what you sacrificed and you don't pay the difference, it goes straight to the yard without passing through play. What you're describing just dumps Spine into the yard, so it's more or less a pricey, off-color Entomb.

    This is a really mediocre week. I voted for Lantern, but I'm not sure I would put any of these on the list if I was making it from scratch.

    I was playing with Yeva, Nature's Herald last night, and had a board of her with 6 +1/+1 counters, Mana Reflection, Perilous Forays, Primeval Bounty, Hornet Queen, and her tokens, with only a Constant Mists in hand. The Kaalia player had just knocked out the Reaper King player, and I was holding him off with fogs. I drew Overwhelming Stampede, so end of his turn I sacced everyone but Yeva for lands, cast Mists five times to put 15 more counters on Yeva, then untapped and cast Stampede to get in for lethal general.

    Edit: To clarify that I didn't swing while fogged.
